Exterior Painting FAQs
Can you use exterior paint inside?
Theoretically, you can use “exterior” paints inside but they may not last as long as paint designed for controlled, interior climates. Interior paints contain harder resins than that allow for better scratch and scuff properties as well as making it easier to clean.
How much does it cost to paint a house exterior?
The cost of exterior painting is dependent on the size of your home, the number of exterior floors, type of material, preparation and repair, etc… An at-home (and sometimes, virtual) estimate can be completed by a qualified estimator.
What is the best exterior paint?
Many brands of paint claim to be the best, but it ultimately comes down to the composition of the paint itself. Paints contain resin, solvents, additives, and pigments and the quality and amount of each is what can help determine quality depending on your application. Generally speaking, higher amounts of titanium dioxide mean better quality paint.
How long does exterior paint take to dry?
Here in Colorado, exterior paint can dry quickly due to the low relative humidity in our high plains desert climate. This is good for getting the job done, but a concern for surface adhesion. Other factors that will impact drying time are paint quality or composition, weather & temperature, and time of day.
What sheen for exterior paint?
It’s recommended that a house be painted with an eggshell or satin finish. Flat or matte finishes are too difficult to clean for exterior paint surfaces and semi-gloss and high-gloss can be too shiny or “wet” looking for a home exterior. HOA’s often have requirements for paint sheen due to the visual properties of flat and high-gloss exterior paints.
How long does exterior paint last?
The average homeowner repaints their interior walls about every 5 years. Kitchens, baths, and kids rooms may require it sooner due to moisture, aerosol droplets, spills, and everyday dust and dirt. Ceilings can often go longer, maybe up to 10 years. Textured walls often require repainting sooner due to the texture capturing dirt and dust making them look dull faster than orange peel or smooth surfaces.
Can you paint a stucco exterior?
Stucco can be painted and protected using acrylic, acrylic latex, or elastomeric paint. These paints are designed to resist bubbling, peeling, flaking, and cracking due to the porous nature of stucco and the natural heat/cold cycles of exterior surfaces. Elastomeric paint is high-build, and though stronger than acrylic, adds additional weight to surfaces with repeated coats.
How often should you paint a house exterior?
The average residential owner repaints every 5 – 10 years, however, the time since the last paint job should be an indicator, not the determining factor. If there are obvious signs of cracking, peeling, or fading, it’s a good time to consider an exterior paint job. Exterior paint acts as a shell, protecting your siding, trim, and your home from the elements.
